Our Changing Demographics - The Majority-Minority Population

The League of Women Voters of Denton looks forward to its November 20th meeting at 7:00 at the Denton Senior Center with Dr. Abraham Benavides, Chair of the MPA program at UNT. Relating to the topic of the growing Hispanic population, Dr. Benavides' academic emphases include local government with areas of special interest including cultural competency, immigration, responsiveness, and Mexican Public Administration.

How do we engage our community leaders and local population to address the needs of our society as our demographics change?

  • Statistics show the Hispanic population not only in Texas but the U.S. is becoming the majority
  • With poverty rates higher for the Hispanic populations, the impact and connection between education and individual economic mobility is important
  • The connection between funding education and the overall economic consequences on the Texas economy
  1. If education is not adequately funded in Texas
    1. High-paying professional positions will be reduced
    2. Sustaining a consumer driven economy will be diminished
  2. Adequately funding education
    1. Minority populations will have increased income
    2. Individually and as a State there will be a positive economic impact
  • The importance of having the minority populations in leadership roles is vital to sustain a viable political environment.

Please come and ask questions regarding Our Changing Population.
